 Sa·lo·me /səˈlomi, ˈsælə(ˌ)me/

From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n : woman whose dancing beguiled Herod into giving her the head
          of John the Baptist

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    perfect. (1.) The wife of Zebedee and mother of James and John
    (Mat. 27:56), and probably the sister of Mary, the mother of our
    Lord (John 19:25). She sought for her sons places of honour in
    Christ's kingdom (Matt. 20:20, 21; comp. 19:28). She witnessed
    the crucifixion (Mark 15:40), and was present with the other
    women at the sepulchre (Matt. 27:56).
      (2.) "The daughter of Herodias," not named in the New
    Testament. On the occasion of the birthday festival held by
    Herod Antipas, who had married her mother Herodias, in the
    fortress of Machaerus, she "came in and danced, and pleased
    Herod" (Mark 6:14-29). John the Baptist, at that time a prisoner
    in the dungeons underneath the castle, was at her request
    beheaded by order of Herod, and his head given to the damsel in
    a charger, "and the damsel gave it to her mother," whose
    revengeful spirit was thus gratified. "A luxurious feast of the
    period" (says Farrar, Life of Christ) "was not regarded as
    complete unless it closed with some gross pantomimic
    representation; and doubtless Herod had adopted the evil fashion
    of his day. But he had not anticipated for his guests the rare
    luxury of seeing a princess, his own niece, a grand-daughter of
    Herod the Great and of Mariamne, a descendant, therefore, of
    Simon the high priest and the great line of Maccabean princes, a
    princess who afterwards became the wife of a tetrarch [Philip,
    tetrarch of Trachonitis] and the mother of a king, honouring
    them by degrading herself into a scenic dancer."
